Industrial Sanitizer is Used in the Food Industry: When it comes to the food industry, cleaning and sanitation are very important to enhance food quality. For there to be a clean food culture in your organization, ensure that those involved in cleaning and sanitizing are certified, trained, and supported in their work. Although coronavirus is not recognized as a food production virus, its spread has become rampant among workers during the production and packaging process.
Continued use of industrial sanitizer is vital to curb the viral spread through the inactivation of the disease-causing pathogens such as SARA-COV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19.
Use of industrial sanitizer
The EPA recognized Lysol Disinfectant Spray (EPA Reg No. 777-99) as an industrial sanitizer used on food contact surfaces. However, before applying the sanitizer, you must effectively clean all the debris with water and soap. After the application, you will be required to rinse the surface to ensure the odor or alcohol present in the sanitizer does not merge with the food. You must always check the industrial sanitizer to ensure the registration number is present as it is proof that EPA has listed it. This number will help you to report cases of an unexpected reaction to the sanitizer.
Before choosing any product to use as an industrial sanitizer on food surfaces, check the label. Your legal responsibility is to ensure that you read the label, understand, and follow all the instructions. In case of any questions, you are advised to contact your state department for agriculture. The label will help you know the instructions for usage and storage of the sanitizer,
the ingredients used in the production, safety measures to take in case of an unexpected reaction, and instructions for use such as dilution for use, safety gears to wear, and whether you need to rinse. Checking the label is very crucial because some products are not to be used on food surfaces because they contain ingredients that are not safe for ingestion.
When purchasing an industrial sanitizer to use in the food production industry, consider the surfaces you are going to a sanitizer, such as countertops, table legs, and drains. The microbial load reduction for products used on non-food contact surfaces should be higher than on food contact surfaces. However, it would be best to keep in mind that the aim is to kill germs and disease-causing pathogens. Consider the material on the surface you are about to sanitize. Some sanitizers are to be used only on stainless steel and plastics. The choice is crucial to avoid corrosive reactions or stains.
The food production industry is very delicate when it comes to the application of industrial sanitizers. If you choose to involve the services of technicians, ensure that they are well trained for the task and know all the precautions to take. If you are to sanitize with your staff, consider the safety measures to take to protect yourselves.
May it be protection against solid, liquid, or airborne particles. When it comes to the storage of the sanitizers, ensure you have labeled the containers well to avoid confusing them with other products used in the food production process. Also, meet all the conditions required for storage of the sanitizers.
